I booked this fantastic place for a small (2 days) personal retreat before meeting with friends for a 10 day trip in Mexico. I was very impressed with everything. The remote location promotes calm, resourcing and was a major change of scenery to escape our cold Canadian winter. Installations are very clean, 5star staff and the food is simply perfect...

Food was delicious. Had an awesome tostada (?) soup to start, a spicy fish dish, and salty butterscotch ice-cream for desert. The coconut shrimp was also a hit with my group as well as the chocolate cake. This restaurant had a reputation amongst my female companions for it's outstanding deserts; it did not disappoint. The hosts accent also added to...

As visitors to the Salchi Bay community up the hill from the Manta Raya Hotel, we ate at the Manta Raya Hotel restaurant a few times per week over the period of one month. We could not stay away as the food and service are exceptional! The cuisine is inventive, beautifully prepared and presented, from appetizer to main course to...

Seems like Manta Raya is becoming a habit with us. After spending a week exploring some New Mexican area ( this time San Christobal), we head for the much needed ocean breezes and relaxing moments at this very unique and wonderful hotel. Reto and staff become more like family and all is well with the world. I kidded Reto when...

Manta Raya is the kind of hidden jewel we continually search for. It lies just far enough off the beaten path to be overlooked by the traveling majority. The hotel is beautiful in its simplicity and impeccably clean from the rooms to the restaurant and down to the pool area. The beach is post card worthy with soft coral sand...

We enjoyed a 7 night stay at Manta Raya and agree with all the positive comments by other reviewers regarding the excellent quality of service, fabulous food, secluded beach and the beach/sunset view rooms. In addition to all that, Reto the General Manager, originally from Switzerland, speaks fluent English, Spanish, French and his native Swiss German easily making all of...

I rarely visit the same place twice, and very rare to stay at the same place. But Salchi and Manta Raya is the exception; I have stayed several times already. Beach is secluded, perfect to relax and enjoy. The Manta Raya staff is excellent, food is awesome. Overall, an excellent place to stay if you are looking to relax in...

I had the privilege of dining at Manta Ray one evening with friends in Salchi. Against the beautiful backdrop of a beach, I was impressed by the ambience of the outdoor setting and the amazing service. The food is divine and is of a quality one would expect from a high end restaurant in a large city. The flavours are...

As hot destinations become more overcrowded and commercial it is more and more rare to come across a truly unique and special place that you will never forget. We found just that place at Manta Raya. We can't say enough good things about it. This boutique hotel is beautifully appointed with gorgeous rooms and views. Try to get the top...

If you want a secluded, quiet spot to hang out, chill and relax; this is the place to be. We spent 6 nights at this hotel. Reto and his staff are amazing, the service is great, and everything that comes out of the kitchen is really good. A few things to note, this really is off the beaten track and...
